    Warm, welcoming, rustic

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 24/08/2018

    » Mallard, a newish Mediterranean eatery is nestled half-way in the popular food soi that is Sukhumvit 49, attached to the Adelphi Forty-Nine Hotel. Named after the dabbling duck known for its adaptability, the restaurant's philosophy is "what we cook is who we are", with a focus on wild and exotic meats. The interior looks like a country farmhouse, with a patio and terrace seating, complete with potted plants, outdoor fans (to keep the hot summer days cool), animal trophies, antler chandeliers and wood and leather furniture. Warm lighting completes the look, which includes a bar in the centre of the restaurant. A very macho restaurant.


    Nothing bitter about this man

    » Bitterman, on Sala Daeng Soi 1, is a 40-year-old house complete with an atrium, full of plants. The restaurant also has leather chairs and tables inside. But since sitting outside in Bangkok is rare, the glass house is by far the most popular, especially during dinner and at weekends when brunch is served. It is also the best spot to be in the afternoon while the warm sun bathes you through the glass, which makes you forget you're in Bangkok for a wee bit. "Even though the concept of the restaurant is home cooking, I think it's a tad boring so I have changed the way we present the food. The best way to describe my menu is simple and sexy," laughs chef de la cuisine Enzo Dela Cruz.


    The Italian affair

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 27/04/2018

    » Sukhumvit 31 is a long soi and we often tend to forget the little cut off street leading to Soi 23. Calderazzo On 31 is on this forgotten street. Having recently moved from Langsuan to 31, Calderazzo is Italian with a difference. It has a rather bistro-like feel to it, with plenty of tables for private or romantic dinners. There is also a patio for those who enjoy the occasional breeze Mother Nature allows Bangkok.


    50 shades of cheese

    » Blink and you'll miss it! The entrance to Ekamai 16 is rather small, narrow and the street sign is barely visible among Bangkok's iconic wire tangle. But what it leads to is a new restaurant serving good old American fare, complete with craft beers -- The Fat Tap. The casual setting in a townhouse is all wood, which is a step up from owner Matthew Fischer's very popular Fatty's Bar and Diner on Din Daeng. The Fat Tap has the cosy feel of a hip hostel, minus the backpackers, with long wooden benches softened by throw pillows. Classic tracks from yesteryear blast in the background and add more character compared to the other pricey craft beer places found in the area.


    Contemporary Japanese

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 26/01/2018

    » The Setting: Clear your mind of any images of izakayas you've ever had. Jua kicks the casual, traditional Japanese gastropub experience up a notch, offering indulgence and sake, plenty of it.


    Dinner under the stars

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 16/11/2018

    » With the Bangkok dining scene bursting at its seams, hotel dining has taken a back seat. More so for hotels in the 'burbs. Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok is more of a business hotel, with a convention centre attached to it. But, it does have a few good dining outlets -- like Blue Sky. Perhaps the only rooftop bar in that part of town, Blue Sky offers a panoramic view of the suburbs from 24-storey high.


    Keeping the funk alive

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 19/10/2018

    » Two Laotian princes, Sanya Souvanna Phouma and Saya Na Champassak are keeping the passion for food of their heritage alive at this Lao restaurant and bar in Thong Lor.


    Hungry for hummus

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 17/08/2018

    » One of the greatest foods to be put into a bowl is the almighty hummus. It makes a great snack or dip and sometimes, even a great meal. And no longer do the Bangkok hipsters have to be caught dead on Sukhumvit 3 for their hummus fix.


    Welcome to the Philippines

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 20/07/2018

    » The Philippines is not known for its food. In fact, it is the one country in Southeast Asia whose cuisine is the least popular. And the only Filipino restaurant to have survived 15 years in the business in Bangkok is Mabuhay (which in Tagalog loosely translates as "welcome").


    Savour Spain

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 25/05/2018

    » Taburete is not new to the Bangkok food scene. In fact, it moved from a small space on Sukhumvit 24 to Soi Sala Daeng a year-and-a-half ago, taking with it the same tastes and flavours. In a slightly bigger space now, with an outdoor terrace area that has four tables, Taburete's quaint concrete facade and fancy grillwork transports one to Spain, where lazy afternoons are spent people-watching while sipping sangria, minus Bangkok's mosquitoes. Once through the wooden doors, you are actually in a tapas bar that has no more than four tables, with a long table against the French window for the streetview.
